of the weekend. we know that the fbi is interrogating dzhokhar tsarnaev. what are they hoping to get from him at this point? >> interrogating may be a bit of a grand word here, because it's certainly not the kind of interrogation they had planned, where they speak to someone. it's being conducted with notes and nods and because he can't speak, he's on a ventilator. so it's a very slow process. but during this period, their government is limited in terms of what they can ask him. because they're doing this public safety exception to the miranda rule. they've not advised him of his rights. so they can only ask about potential threats to public safety. were there other conspirators, other bombs out there, any reason to believe that public safety is in any way jeopardized. >> pete, one of the persons cited in terms of this idea that there may have been more violent plans on order at the hands of the brothers is this person who was hijacked by the brothers on thursday night. and the driver of a mercedes suv. we know that he's been cooperating with police. is there anything else that we know about

. nick paton walsh for us this morning in dagestan. we have further information about dzhokhar tsarnaev. here here in boston in the hospital after he suffered massive blood loss. that's where we find pamela brown this morning. what have we learned? >> reporter: we are learning new information this morning. we learned from a department of justice official that federal prosecutors have been here at the hospital since last night figuring out possible charges to bring forward and we're learning from that official that those charges will be coming soon even possibly while the suspect is still here at the hospital. now, we don't know the extent of the charges that will be brought forward but according to the doj official, the suspect will face terrorism charges. he is in federal custody. he will be charged with federal charges and he could face murder charges on the state level. now interesting to note here, there is no death penalty here in the state of massachusetts but the death penalty could be sought on the federal level since that supersedes state charges. no charges have been brought f
. the fbi has now identified one of them as 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he's still on the run. the other man is his brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev. he's the older brother. he is now dead, killed in a wild overnight police shootout. these two brothers said to be from a russian region near chechnya and believed to have been in the u.s. for quite some time. in the hours since the fbi first made the images public, we also received this chilling photo. look at this. can you see it? we've sort of blocked -- we've blocked the faces. it's actually not that user friendly now that we've blocked the faces, but it appears to show one of the suspects standing behind the 8-year-old little boy, little martin richard, who was murdered at that marathon at the second location. this is the second bombing on monday. you can see the backpack on the bottom, you can see the suspect in the back, and you can see the 8-year-old in the full screen picture that settle original of what we're showing you here. >> that suspect, disok dzhokhar tsarnaev, his uncle was pronouncing his name differently in the i in
that dzhokhar tsarnaev is in no condition to talk to the feds, at least not yet. but we are told, he has two gunshot wound, one from the carjacking bomb throwing that police chase, he and his brother, thursday night. we have team fox coverage for you this morning. mike tobin is in watertown, where police cornered and captured the suspect on friday night. the community trying to recover today. but we start at beth israel hospital in boston. the suspect and several victims being treated there. hi, molly. >> reporter: hi, jamie. that's right. dzhokhar tsarnaev is being treated by the doctors, under heavy guard, understandably. the authorities are standing by, ready to talk to him when he becomes able to talk. eddavis spoke on "fox news sunday." he said the fbi has not been able to start an interrogation because he is not in a condition to be interrogated. take a listen to the commissioner. >> the suspect is in serious but stable condition. the questioning's going to be done by a special team, sent in by the fbi. as far as i know, that has not happened yet. >> reporter: is he able to speak? is h
that possibly dzhokhar tsarnaev is coming back to consciousness and able to communicate with investigators. it all goes back to "usa today" report citing anonymous law enforcement source but if the information hashings out it is certainly significant, the fact he is able to communicate with investigators by writing. he can't speak because as you mentioned there is a gunshot wound either to the neck or jaw or both but he is able to write according to this report and the answers providing to questions are described as substantive. what know from the information the answers he is providing indicates there is not a larger network. there is not a second wave planned or a wave people should be fearful of connected to him. again the information, the sourcing on the information just doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence, jenna. jenna: we'll take that interest consideration, mike as you've been on the ground there for the past several days. we see the flowers behind you and tell us where you are and when will the area around the blast site be reopened to the public? >> reporter: this is copley
. dzhokhar tsarnaev, in surgery in beth israel hospital in boston, after police say a homeowner noticed a trail of blood in his back yard. >> the men who found him at the boat said he was covered with blood. we assume those injuries occurred the evening before. there was an exchange of gunfire at the boat. i don't know if he was struck. >> now these are some of the images taken right after his capture. you can see him here, well, he's out on the pavement there, or the near -- near the area of the boat. he is here in an ambulance, before heading to the hospital. adam house lie, joining us live now with more. adam? >> reporter: yeah, gregg, he was brought here under guard to this hospital, beth israel in boston, where he remains under guard. just about every entrance in and in and out of the hospital and the entire medical compound here at beth israel has a number of police officer in just about every location, across the street, like the children's hospital hospital you will find increased security. we were told he was in surgery, multiple injuries, one to his hand and one to his head. w
in the bombings. dzhokhar tsarnaev is charged with a crime that could bring the death penalty. it includes using a weapons of mass destruction to kill he and his older brother tamerlan who is dead are accused of setting off two pressure cooker bombs. it shows the tsarnaev brothers walked into the street together each with an explosion in their backpack one heading toward the finish line the other toward the restaurant the site of the second explosion. killing 3 people and wounding more than 200. >> this is a matter decided by the department of justice and the attorney general. the whole national security team supports this decision. let's be clear. there is not an alternative for a u.s. citizen to be tried in a military commission. >>> jay carney referring to the fact that the younger dzhokhar tsarnaev has been mir ran died. they were chechen they move to do america 4 years ago and they are looking at what motivated them to carry out such a violent attack from i am tear gageses are the 19-year-old dzhokhar pointing out how russia informed the fbi that older brother tamerlan was a radical islamis
of a jihadist mentality. the 19-year-old, the one who is still alive, dzhokhar tsarnaev, seems to have been less, i think ideologic ideological, if you will. based on the evidence that we have. and i wonder, frank, there's this idea of mercy in american society. and the "boston herald" in today's paper writes we know he's 19 years old, we don't think he has a criminal record. there are a lot of people out there who seem to have warm, positive things to say about him. to predict he'll get a life sentence is not unreasonable. there are democrats who have said, republicans and democrats who have called for capital punishment in this case. there's a question of whether giving him a lesser sentence, if he does cooperate with authorities, given who he is and how young he is. >> the lesser sentence being life. >> life isn't much of a lesser sentence. it's a pretty satisfying punishment. you know, there's nothing that we can ever do that will, that will make us feel any better about what happened. death penalty versus life -- those are very serious, very, very serious punishments. and you know, there's
in came edge about, massachusetts, a chechen, apparently. dzhokhar tsarnaev. tell us what you know. >> 19 years old from overseas, been in the u.s. for more than a year. both suspects said to be brothers. as we watch that. i want to make one last point here, if i could, come out live here to our location on boylston street. i want the audience to understand just how easy it would have been for these two people to simply walk away from the scene. runners were coming down eastbound here on boylston street. the explosions are dropped at quarter mile down the street. both bombers are walking west on boylston street. it's an easy thing to duck into gloucester or newberry street or com avenue and then cross the river, which is only a quarter mile away and that takes you to the intersection of vasser and main, which is where police were called in last night at 10:30 p.m. after the report of a robbery at a local convenience station. that's really -- that seems to be the best tip yet that we have gotten, to notify authorities that these guys were in the area and they were the people that the f.b
and the homemade grenades and exchange with police how dzhokhar tsarnaev escapes? how does he get out of that standoff? i don't fully understand that yet. >> what they said at the news conference -- they said twice he escaped on foot. he abandoned a car they said in watertown and escaped on foot. it does seem to be, based on the news conference that his ties are to watertown. so this is an area that he is familiar with and very comfortable with and he would have the advantage on foot. >> bret: okay, catherine, thank you. house homeland security chairman republic mike mccaul of texas has access to the latest information. he is here with us this evening. first, mr. chairman, thanks for coming back. your thoughts after hearing this press briefing about this man hunt and what they are dealing with. >> i think they have relative confidence where he may be and that's why they are opening up the city. again, they can't clamp down this city for more than 24 hours. like you, i'm a little bit astounded that he he escaped the scene after the carjacking event. but i remain very hopeful and positi
official tells me the surviving suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is revealing new details about his motives. a u.s. government official tells me the suspect has cited the wars in afghanistan and iraq as motivating factors in the attack. investigators say he claims they had no contact with any foreign terrorist organization and they were self-radicalized on the internet. the preachings of cleric anwar al awlaki who was killed several years ago in a drone strike were, quote, likely, unquote, to have been among the videos the brothers watched in this process according to this official. likely. we should add we have no evidence that dzhokhar tsarnaev is telling the truth and the investigators still have to check out the preliminary interviews, but some information is forthcoming. investigators are looking into whether the brothers were influenced by a magazine put out by an al qaeda affiliate, yes, al qaeda has a magazine. but it features articles like how to make a bomb in your mom's kitchen. it is confirmed that the older suspect bought two reloadable mortar kits with 48 shells from a store in new
see dzhokhar tsarnaev just after the murder of an m.i.t. police officer. >> first the headline from the suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev, we acted alone. a u.s. government source quotes the surviving suspect saying the older brother was the master mind and they had no international ties to terror groups. he also says the men were motivated by radical islam and the jihadist goal of waging a holy war. they learned to make their bombs from readily available instructions on the internet. deborah has the latest from new york. >> wolf, we can tell you investigators are painting a much fuller picture of the parents and the life this tamerlan tsarnaev was living. his pull here in the united states and his life over in the russian caucasus. what we can tell you this morning is that the m.i.t. officer that was shot to death did not radio into dispatch to request a description of the suspect and he did not alert dispatch he was responding to the two men who apparently came up to him totally unaware. he was shot four to five times according to a source. it took at least nearly 13 minutes to actually f
afford an attorney, he replied no. among the charges, 19-year-old suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev faces one count of using a weapon of mass destruction. which carries a potential maximum sentence of death. we've learned despite the injury to his neck, he is cooperating with investigators, writing his answers to at least some of their questions. sources tell abc news, among the details he has provided is that he and his brother learned how to make bombs from the internet. >> it was his brother, the primary motivating force for him to become radicalized. why did they end up doing what they did on that day? >> reporter: much of the investigation is still focused on his deceased 26-year-old brother tamerlan. examining his life, his recent trip back to russia, as some question if the fbi did enough to monitor him after they questioned him two years ago. >> they investigated it thoroughly and did not find terrorist activity domestic or foreign. >> reporter: the street where two bombs killed three people and injured more than 200 others is handed over from the fbi to the city of boston for the ong
callum. the authorities were thinking they may not be able to question dzhokhar tsarnaev, suspect in case. there is reports of throat wound, they thought might be self-inflicted after his brother was killed in a shoot without with police. bill: mike tobin leads our coverage back in boston. the latest on that we can report on the investigation is what, mike? good morning there? >> reporter: the latest we can report from this investigation what lead authorities to the brother. that appears to be mountains and mountains of security video. the justice department spoke with our producer mike levine, they looked at security video. this is video not yet been released. don't get confused by what you see on the screen. you see people react to the blast. most people turn in the direction of the blast. the tsnaraev brothers do not. that set up red flags. that got law enforcement zeroing on the two brothers. bill: mike, we're trying to piece this together as best we can but what can you tell us about the reports that the fbi is questioning him today from his hospital bed? >> reporter: all of that goe
our privacy during this difficult time. the surviving boston bombing suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is improving in a local hospital. that comes a day after a federal judge found him to be alert, mentally competent, and lucid at a bedside hearing. cnn's brooke baldwin is joining us now from beth israel deaconess medical center here in boston. brooke, what do we know about the suspect's health? >> reporter: wolf, we now know from the fbi and folks here at beth israel hospital here in boston that 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev has been upgraded from serious condition now to fair condition. what does that mean? if you listen to our chief medical correspondent sanjay gupta he basically explains that means tsarnaev's vital signs have stabilized. things like heart pressure, blood pressure, and heart rate for example. we know he had an operation on saturday so a couple days out his condition has been improving which obviously is good news. that of course is predicated upon whether or not he decides to continue cooperating with investigators but also that his medical condition clearly helps
as dzhokhar tsarnaev lies in a hospital bed facing charges. his condition now reported as fair. more than a week after the bombing, 45 of the scores of wounded remain hospitalized, and at least 13 have lost limbs. for the victims, the physical and emotional toll comes with a very real financial one as well. massive bills for trauma care, prosthetic limbs and even home modifications. not to mention, lengthy physical rehab and psychological counseling. as such, one fund boston is stepping in to help. already raising over $10 million for victims and their families. and while the injured struggle with recovery, the families of those killed in the bombing are facing their own staggering loss. the family of 8-year-old martin richard held a private memorial releasing a statement today, "this has been the most difficult week of our lives, and we appreciate that our friends and family have given us space to grieve and heal. a private funeral mass was celebrated this morning with immediate family. we laid our son, martin, to rest, and he is now at peace." and friends, family and colleagues are sayi
the question is, is dzhokhar tsarnaev that suspect, in that boat without any way out? and are some of the shots and explosions heard in the last few minutes somehow linked to him, from him, being aimed at him? is he still alive? we just don't know. but we do know that it's on going and it is all happening right now at 67 franklin street in watertown, massachusetts, and f course this comes at a time when this city only minutes earlier had gotten a reprieve from no less than the governor to come out your homes to relax, your guard can be let down. you can ease up and then the shots started firing up. within just the last half hour or so, we're told better than 30 shots fired. and within the last five minutes or so we're told at least three large explosions heard. eric sawn? -- sean in boston with the very latest. do we know in fact that the suspect hiding in that boat backyard is dzhokhar tsarnaev? >> reporter: we only know from reports and from sources it is believed that it is the suspect number two who was, reportedly inside that boat. we heard some of those bangs just a few minutes ago, and
this morning in boston. suspect number two, dzhokhar tsarnaev is in custody at beth israel hospital at this hour after a very tense 24-hour manhunt and tense standoff and shootout with police last night. >>brian: the 19-year-old was found in a boat in the backyard of the home in a town in watertown not far from where his brother was killed in a shootout with police. he actually would run over his brother that day and maybe kill him. the homeowner noticed a strap cut on his boat. they found tsarnaev inside covered with blood. >> the man who dialed 911 rushed to the scene, tried to negotiate with him to give himself up, but tsarnaev wasn't going down without a fight. police were able to take him alive. >>alisyn: we have live team coverage of the dramatic new developments this morning. molly line is downtown. first we want to go to beth israel hospital with the latest on the suspect's condition. good morning, adam. >> good morning. as the sun comes up here and the rain comes down, behind me here is beth israel hospital. around this complex, a very large medical complex, you'll find pol
is alive, dzhokhar tsarnaev, 19 years old, a resident of cambridge is being sought. his brother was killed last night in the interaction with police, tamerlan tsarnaev who was 26 years old. it all started last night in cambridge. there was a shootout with an officer at m.i.t. on the m.i.t. campus. that officer having been killed last night, found dead in his police cruiser. the suspects then reportedly carjacked an suv, and a chase ensued. at one point they did release the driver unharmed. they went into watertown which is just outside of cambridge, about 10, 15 minutes outside of cambridge and that's where there was a shootout with police. by 1:30 a.m., the first suspect tamerlan tsarnaev was dead and the second suspect was on the loose and being chased. this morning at about 5:00 a.m. police shut down the mbta. they have also now seen the shutdown of amtrak between boston and providence, a major shutdown. ed davis, commissioner of police, says this is a major man hunt. >> overall at this hour we've seen a lot of activity. they have surrounded the home in cambridge of the suspects where b
. police cornered 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev in a two-hour standoff. he was hiding in a boat in the backtown of a watertown home. he had been shot, he lost a lot of blood. this morning he is in a boston area hospital. at last check he was listed in serious condition. after his capture, massachusetts governor deval patrick and authorities praised police efforts and the community's cooperation. >> it was a very, very complicated case, a very challenging case, and there are still some questions remaining to be answered. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this
, the one they are still trying to find now, dzhokhar tsarnaev was born in kyrgyzstan. his family lives in russia and we're told his father was a public official there at one time. the reason we're told for this extraordinary security in the area of watertown is, of course, because they still don't know where the other of the two brothers, the second bomber is located. they think they know where he is. they believe that's the place they have surrounded and where you just saw kerry sanders reporting but there's a further concern that these two brothers may have had af coccomplices an authorities found another bomb in boston. a device in the charles gate area. they rendered it safe but they are concerned there maybe accomplices. they can't be certain of it. but there's a concern there maybe accomplices at large. you put all of those factors together, and we're told that's the reason for the extraordinary security. there's been a report that one accomplice tried to escape on a train to connecticut. that the train was stopped. we believe now that this is not the case. savannah? >> pete will
two dzhokhar tsarnaev is armed and extremely dangerous, may be wearing a suicide vest. >> indications are strong that the current outstanding party may be wearing a suicide vest. again, all units use extreme caution approaching any party that matches the description of the outstanding party. >> reporter: it began last night. with the robbery of a convenience store in cambridge at approximately 7:30. a surveillance camera inside the store, caught the image of the man eye dented mied five hours earlier of suspect number two in the marathon bombings. on the campus of m.i.t. a shoot-out that left an police officer dead. next, the two men carjacked a rcedes and then led the police on a wild, violent chase >> wha reports that have explosives at the scene. >> reporter: two men firing weapons and tossing explosives at the cars of pursuing police. the chase ended a with a gun fight in a residential neighborhood in watertown, where one resident took these pictures showing bullet holes. >> several explosive devices were discharged from the car at the police officers. in the exchange of the gunfi
government official and this is a preliminary investigation but dzhokhar tsarnaev is saying the following to investigators. first of all, there were no foreign terrorist groups involved. that this was two brothers acting on their own. dzhokhar, not surprisingly is saying he was following his older brother tamerlan and tamerlan was the one who was the driving force behind this. in addition, there's an indication from the interviews that the brothers were self radicalized on-line. they were getting information from videos on-line, you tube videos on-line but not from communication or e-mail the way the ft. hood shooter was but they were very much self starters, self radicalized. the older brother, it seems from preliminary investigation, to have been motivated by jihad, traditional jihad motivation and political implications that they are under attack and jihad dis need to fight back. this is from preliminary interviews with this individual, with dzhokhar tsarnaev. >> the interviews have been limited. >> very limited. everything needs to be checked out. the investigators will follow up. the
matthews picks things up right now. >>> dzhokhar tsarnaev. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews with the latest developments in the manhunt for the boston bombing suspect. 24 hours ago, the fbi released video and photos of the two suspects as i'm speaking, authorities are carrying out a massive manhunt for one of those suspects. 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he was born in the former soviet republic of kyrgyzstan. his family is chechnyan. he became an american citizen last year on 9/11. authorities are searching house to house in the boston suburb of watertown where he's believed to be holed up. older brother, suspect number one was killed last night in a shootout with police. nbc news reports that at that shootout, 200 rounds were exchanged. and before that happened, he and his brother killed a security officer at m.i.t. held a man captive after carjacking him. and severely wounded another police officer. the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, was 26. nbc news learned he spent six months last year outside of the country. authorities are still piecing together w
-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev, his brother, coming to america as children from the northern caucuses in rushia, living in the u.s. for years, as long as a decade. studying in our schools... only we can presume to become radicalized at a point, we do not know yet, allegedly striking back at the same country they had as a second home. >> we were not that concerned about the chechen community. i have been getting top-secret briefings almost 9 years. vinever heard threats from the chechen community. >> that was a very interesting point that the congressman made. in fact, i just got an email from someone in afghanistan, major general jim mcconville, who is there with our troops. we know historically, the chechens have had activity in afghanistan. but there doesn't seem to be any evidence of any threats on our soil here in the united states, from the chechens. this would be something new. and the question we will have to learn, as they review everything, including all the activities of these two brothers on the day of the marathon and since, is whether or not they had contact with anyone o
as radical gets. >>steve: have you seen this? the dramatic video of police closing in on dzhokhar tsarnaev? they used an infrared thermal imaging camera to pinpoint his exact location and movements inside the boat. >>brian: joining us with more on this technology taken from above, anna kooiman. >> good morning. they are stunning, these images. they were taken while taking tsarnaev into custody. you can see in the video released by the massachusetts state police, the 19-year-old in the boat, that image you see there is his body highlighted to thermal imaging. police were able to monitor his every movement because of this technology. now watch this. those big black puffs, those are explosions believed to be the flash grenades police threw at him. the company that makes the thermal cameras said the equipment worked exactly how it was supposed to. >> i think it was a real win they could look through the cover and see him lying inside the technology has been around for decades, but as you can see it keeps getting better and better. flare has more than 100 cameras in law enforcement communities.
that the community sort of begins to wrap its head around this, in so far as dzhokhar and tamerlan tsarnaev were part of the communities in which they lived. one was a wrestler, one was a boxer. >> can you state it a little louder, please? >> i was saying how does the community begin to wrap its head around what has happened. given the fact that two of the suspects, dzhokah tsarnaev and his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, were very much part of the community in which they grew up. they went to local schools. one was competitive boxer, one was a wrestler. by all accounts they were you know, dzhokhar tsarnaev was seen as a nice guy, a shy guy in his high school. but liked. not an outcast by any means. you know how does a community begin to think of, begin to process something like this? >> well, it is what it is. you know people weren't, the fact that they are among us, humanity, some people who are, who are vicious and violent and morally deformed, we're aware of this. look at the people in texas are now experiencing the fact that you know, two prosecutors were murdered by a home-grown texan. people don't
that dzhokhar tsarnaev, the one everybody is looking for, might be just a few blocks down here at an office complex. a security sensor had been -- had tipped off that there was, authorities, there was some intrusion that led everybody to think he was there. cars were zooming down here with screaming lights, and that turned out to be a wash. so i think that's just another reminder of how cautious we have to be until we know for sure where things stand. what we do know is he's on the loose. we do know -- we don't know -- there's no confidence that they know where he is and whether or not he has any accomplices. that may be an open question at this point. and probably the biggest open question of all is whether there are any more explosive devices, any ieds out there that he's left to maim and kill people that they don't know about. one was found in boston earlier today, and that may be the scariest singleknow, though, th police have been going door-to-door in this area all day. how far along do you think they are in securing the area? because as i understand it, at 12:30 when governor deval p
tsarnaev is dead. suspect number two, dzhokhar tsnaraev, his younger brother, age 19, still unaccounted for. jennifer griffin is live with our national security view on this from our bureau in washington, d.c. we're told they have ties to chechnya. that they could be russian- born but chechnya according to their ethnicity. they spent some time there at least at a younger age, jennifer. what more do we have on that? >> reporter: that is really interesting. when i heard of the name of the younger one, the one with the white cap who is still on the loose, the name dzhokar was very familiar to me. the dzhokar dudivey first president of chechnya was killed. had a violent death by the russians when he used his satellite phone, two missiles came out of the sky and killed him. i remember being in lebanon at the time and remember when he was killed, he was killed in chechnya on april 21st, which of course is coming up this weekend, this sunday. that made me think if these two are chechen nationalists in some way, dzhokar dudiav, dzhokhar tsnaraev accused of planting the boston marathon bomb, that is
the page and move onto a sense of normalcy, but as the investigation continues into dzhokhar tsarnaev who remains injured and innovative. -- intubated. guest: the their travel is likely going to be key to understand whether or not this event was for an inspired, or perhaps even concocted in consultation with individuals abroad. key questions will likely revolve around the older brother, and secondary questions, how it did this individual seem to lead such a double life? all the family and friends that have come forward have been shocked. that happens quite frequently in this type of case, but in this case he really does seem to have been quite well liked and well integrated and kept this other part of his life entirely separate. host: and again, this is based on what we know so far. it seems like a lot of the questions into the older brother, the 26-europe, who spent six months in russia. there was a conversation over the weekend between the president and russian president vladimir putin. right now there is no strong reason to think that this is directly tied to a foreign terrorist group.
who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
, this at a residence that is believed to have been affiliated with the suspect, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev, in the past, the fbi took three people, two males and a female, into custody for questioning friday evening, according to new bedford police. the residence searched by the private off-campus housing of three students. there have been questions throughout the day, i talked to chris lawrence about this, whether or not the suspect, dzhokhar, was actually living on the umass dartmouth campus or whether he was at this residence that was being searched throughout the day in cambridge. it doesn't seem like we really know one way or the other. >> we should be careful in the sense they have been taken in for questioning. they're going to retrace every step as they look through every e-mail, cell phone conversation, every place he's lived in recent years, friends, family members, they will question everybody. now we wait to see from the fbi, new bedford police saying they were taken in for questioning by the fbi. we'll see whether they are persons of interest or they are just trying to get inf
. another big news day. glad you are with us, i'm jenna lee is that i'm jon scott. dzhokhar tsarnaev cannot speak much due to his injuries. after due case of what is being reported as written interrogation investigate errings are saying they now think they know what drove tsarnaev and his brother allegedly to carry out the deadly bombings. the feds say religious tpef srer and not ties to foreign terror groups appears to be the motivation. the criminal complaint against tsarnaev lace out allegations against him and his brother who died in that violent shootout with police just days after the bombings. the teenage terror suspect is now charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, crimes that could carry the death penalty. molly line is live for us right now in boston. molly. >> reporter: jon the affidavit from a top fbi agent gives us an inside look at just what the investigators have as far as evidence is concerned in this case. they say that they have been looking at a video tape from the scene on boylston street that shows that the two suspects involved arrived on
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
abc's senior correspondent pierre thomas in washington. pierre, dzhokhar tsarnaev is in serious condition, and in no shape to be questioned. >> my sources are telling me that the suspect has a wound to the throat and neck area, that's made it very difficult to speak. he apparently knows police killed his brother, but that special interrogation team is standing by, ready to go. >> and they'll ask him questions at first without reading him his miranda rights. when do you expect charges to be filed? >> charges could come as early today. terror charges that could bring the death penalty. he won't be read his miranda rights. they're going to use the public safety can exception. they're taking this extraordinary step because there could be an imminent threat still out there. i just got off the phone, george, with a senior law enforcement, of deep concern of ammunition, guns and working bombs these men had. they were so disciplined. >> any indication of another sleeper cell? >> right now, no evidence of a broader plot involving more people here, but law enforcement officials say they c
purchased, about the video surveillance that led them to dzhokhar tsarnaev, and the purpose is to show the evidence that they have against this guy, and they're going to lay some, but not all, of that out in the fbi affidavit. >> mike, precisely, specifically, what is he likely to be charged with? >> reporter: well, it's going to be terrorism-relatinged charges, and that could include a charge for use of weapons of mass destruction. the ied bombs will be, can fit under that section of the federal code, and that -- that and these other charges could -- would lead to the death penalty, if convicted. doesn't mean that the federal government will seek the death penalty, but these charges could result in the death penalty. we won't know whether the justice department is seeking the death penalty from this criminal complaint charge today. that will come much later. >> let's talk about the wound to the throat we're starting to hear about. that apparently has prevented him from being able to speak. how are interrogators going to get around this? just a simple, they ask questions and he writes

there is something being confused by a lot of folks. if you were to name dzhokhar tsarnaev an enemy combatant, that does not necessarily mean he goes to it now -- to gitmo. you can name him an enemy combatant for purposes of interrogation. after the interrogation is completed, you can transfer him back to the criminal justice system. all that happens is the information you've gotten from him during the time he is an enemy combatant would not be admissible in a court of law. you do not use it for that. you do not use it for criminal prosecution. use it for intelligence. use it to unravel terrorism that may be ongoing and learn more about terrorist groups that are in this country and elsewhere plotting against us. i've got to tell you, it is a red herring to say, i do not want a military tribunal. by the way -- guest: no one is saying that. guest: i've heard others say, this is all about getting him to gitmo. the priority should be to get information from him. or should there -- there could be other ways to do it. the public safety exception allows -- host: we will get to that -- hist: what thi
